    I'm getting my ears pierced in a couple of weeks and I know you have to leave the earrings in for a few weeks to let the holes heal up. Problem is I do judo so obviously I have to take them out for that. Coach said I can't even tape them up, they have to be out completely. I probably won't be going over the summer, so June to September will be three months solid that the earrings will be in, at that point will I be able to take them out for an hour or two once a week without having to worry about them healing up?

    You cannot remove them for 6 weeks, after which you can remove them, but should try to only do this to change earrings. You can leave them out for much longer periods after 6 months. 3 months should be alright.

    With the earrings that are used when getting your ears pierced, they have got to be left in for 6 weeks

    Yeah I think after 3 months should be fine. Just make sure you put them straight back in again as it really takes 6 months for your ears to properly heal so that you can leave them oout for longer periods of time

    Which part of the ear are you getting pierced? Lobes heal much faster than piercings in the cartilage and can be removed earlier.

    I took my earrings out for judo once for only 1 hour and they healed up, even after that little time. After 6 weeks it was fine though.

    I've had 5 lobe piercings and some of them healed faster than others so it is hard to say, best to use your own judgement really. 3 months is plenty of time for the piercings to heal, especially if you clean them properly every day.
